"My Daughters stay"

About: Darlington Memorial Hospital

My daughter was brought in by ambulance to A&E on saturday 8th August with a broken leg after she had fallen off a scooter the staff including ambulance team were amazing

She was in a lot of pain & very worried about what was going to happen to her (shes only 8 & this is the 1st time shes ever needed to go to hospital) but the staff on a&e were amazing with her they treat her like a princess & took all her worries away

It kept me a lot calmer seeing what good hands she was in they never rushed through anything & explained everything they were doing.

I cant thank them enough for treating my daughter with amazing care.
